We visited on the first outdoor day this year (Saturday 5th April) It was really windy which made things difficult for the vendors but the food was still outstandingly delicious. We were staying downtown so made the trip using the East River ferry. That really added to the day as we got great views and a pleasant boat trip. As well as food to eat on the spot there is also much to buy and take away such as jams, chutneys, pickles, breads and all sorts. As we were visiting from the UK we couldn't buy as much as we would have liked but couldn't resist some of it.

Stand out bite? Can't decide between Landhaus Maple Bacon on a stick and the Lemon-Ricotta fritter from Frittering Away. Both worth a trip!

Smorgasburg is also at Brooklyn Bridge Park on a Sunday - fabulous views from there too.

We visited on the last weekend it was indoors and it was a great way to spend a chilly Sunday. Great way to taste many amazing foods in one place! The worst part was trying to choose what to have! Don't miss it!

I love the food market all year round, but it's nice to get outside in the summer. Great views of Manhattan as well from the water. Food is great, so expect long queues. Beer 'garden' available as well.

The cookie sandwiches are amazing! I tried the goodwich and my friend got the s'more and they were both relish! $6 each. Also got an over priced, but very juicy chicken skewer ($3) at a place that just did skewers (teriyaki or salt flavor options) and had a long wait. Can't wait to go back and check out other stands. Some places accept credit card and they have an ATM and free WiFi. Benches and portable potties available
